Easy mocktail recipes


The holiday season is usually associated with fancy feasts, gift-giving and family time. But if there’s one underdog that needs more recognition, it’s the accompanying beverages that help keep the festivities going.  If you’re looking for unique creations to impress your guests with, check out these easy drink recipes from F&N’s partnership with cocktail specialist Kiki’s Reserve. They’ve created 10 exclusive cocktail and mocktail recipes, and a Happiest Happy Hour Kit that comes with an exclusive recipe book. Here’s a sneak preview:

Note: All these mocktail recipes are for one-person servings.


1. Peach and lemon yoghurt mocktail

Yogurt-based bubble teas have long been all the rage, so it’s no surprise that a yoghurt mocktail would be a gut-friendly option to wash down a rich meal. 

Dubbed The Milky Way, this refreshing beverage pairs yoghurt with fresh lemon juice and sparkling peach-flavoured water. It’s added with some bite thanks to aloe vera and nata de coco bits, so it’s almost like an upscale BBT. 

Ingredients:

  • 90ml Ice Mountain Sparkling Water Peach
  • 60ml Magnolia aLIVE low-fat yoghurt with aloe vera and nata de coco
  • 20ml fresh lemon juice
  • 35ml simple syrup

Steps:

  1. Add yoghurt, lemon juice and simple syrup into a glass and mix well.
  2. Add large ice cubes and top with sparkling water.
  3. Optional: garnish with either a candy cane or a blackberry on a cocktail pick.

Pro Tip: Make your own simple syrup by dissolving 1:1 sugar to water.


2. Sparkling grapefruit with earl grey tea

For those looking for something sweet and refreshing to wash down your third serving of roast chicken, try the Grapefruit Royaltea – a tea-based mocktail with a dash of grapefruit-flavoured sparkling water. It’s sweetened with honey and comes with a sour kick from fresh grapefruit juice.

Ingredients:

  • 70ml Ice Mountain Sparkling Water Grapefruit
  • 70ml fresh grapefruit juice
  • 45ml french earl grey tea
  • 20ml honey

Steps:

  1. Steep the french earl grey tea sachet in 100ml of hot water for at least 15 minutes. 
  2. Pour in fresh grapefruit juice, french earl grey tea and honey in a glass and mix it.
  3. Add large ice cubes and top it up with Ice Mountain Sparkling Water Grapefruit.
  4. Optional: garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a rosemary sprig.

P.S. Health-conscious folks will be glad to know that Ice Mountain Sparkling Water has zero sugar and calories, and is an alternative to carbonated soft drinks.


3. Isotonic refresher with ginger and honey

100PLUS is a drink most of us would grab after a day spent outdoors, so using it as a mocktail base is unique, to say the least. A perfect refreshment for a hot day, the Isotonic Boost combines your favourite 100PLUS with other elements like ginger for a spicy kick.

Ingredients:

  • 165ml 100PLUS Zero
  • 25ml fresh lime juice
  • 10ml honey
  • 1.5 slices of muddled ginger

Steps:

  1. Muddle ginger slices, honey and fresh lime juice in a glass.
  2. Top with 100PLUS Zero.
  3. Optional: garnish with a mint sprig, flower, or a lemon slice.

Pro Tip: Strain the fresh lime juice with a sieve to get rid of pulp and have a smoother finish.
